Branson with the GrandGirls!

Right now, Tim and I are taking the slow route to Houston, for the annual Southern Baptists Convention of Texas meeting.  We're doing our best to stay dry in one of the worst Hill Country floods in the history of EVER.   But as I was getting ready to post a few pictures about this adventure, I realized I still hadn't posted anything at all about our trip to Branson in September.  So, here it is.  I'll keep it short and sweet.

Cowboys and the girls.  At the Arkansas Welcome Center.

Our first view of Lake Taneycomo, just outside of Branson

The Christmas Store is just across from  Mel's Hard Luck Diner, where the wait staff are all talented performers.  They sing as they wait on you.  Literally.  We actually saw a waitress holding her microphone in one hand and pouring tea with the other.  I didn't get a picture of our server, but we did buy one of his cd's.  After our lunch, Cowboy had to stop and chat with his old friend Santa!

We didn't actually go into the Auto Museum, but there were several cool cars outside.  I thought this Mutt Cutts truck was cute.

Since the girls were with us, we stayed in a fully furnished 2 bedroom cabin at the RV Park instead of taking the 5th wheel.  This not only gave us more room for the girls, but allowed us to take the car instead of the pickup.  And the girls loved the indoor pool.  We spent a lot of time here.

We also didn't get around to actually visiting Ripley's Believe it or Not, but GrandGirl #1 wanted her picture taken with the giant Transformer guarding the door.

I don't know why I didn't take more photos of the things we DID do.  We took the girls to see The Haygoods, Six, and Smoke on the Mountain.  There was some hiking, some swimming and a long drive in the country to see the beautiful Missouri scenery.  And there was eating.  Lots of eating!  

It was a super fun week.  The girls were so much fun to be with.  Can't wait to do it again!
